    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Friday 22 October 2010Performance 19 - 21 October 2010

    “At its best, it feels like birdsong in movement form: clusters of flicks and flourishes, jumps and swooping dives, with the dancers eddying in groups like starlings, or watching, perched, from the sidelines.”  

  2. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Rosas in The Song at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 22 October 2010Performance 19 - 21 October 2010

    “I’ve cut such minimalistic pieces some slack for their beguilingly trance-inducing qualities. But a trance is one thing – a coma, quite another.”

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 20 October 2010Performance 15 - 17 October 2010

    ‘Her po-faced reputation is baffling when you watch the alluring L’Amour au theatre, while Opal Loop, with Fujiko Nakaya’s cloud-like dry ice set, literally looks like heaven.’

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 20 October 2010Performance 15 - 17 October 2010

    ‘L’Amour is not only a piece of ravishing beauty, but a repository of profound technical knowledge. It’s the bricklayer turned master builder.’

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 20 October 2010Performance 15 - 17 October 2010

    ‘L’Amour au theatre, created last year, worked better. As singers burbled about pleasure, Brown’s dancers skipped with contemporary-dance solemnity.’

    Press Review Gerald Dowler, Financial Times, Wednesday 20 October 2010Performance 15 - 17 October 2010

    ‘Opal Loop/Cloud Installation #72503 (1980) is vintage Brown: a miasma of stage smoke acts as a backdrop to four dancers clad in either body-stockings or pyjamas and performing separately to silence. The first in Brown’s Unstable Molecular Structure series…

    ‘What Flashdance doesn’t do is subtlety, and the noise-level starts out blasting and goes on up. Arlene Phillips’s choreography is generous in quantity and gratuitously saucy throughout, all thrusting bums, thigh-stroking and Page Three smirks – a…

    ‘This metaphor is at the heart of Arlene Phillips’s brilliant choreography, which matches the grinding blare of 1980s heavy metal rock and street-fighting savvy – the 1983 film’s five “theatrical” songs have been boosted to a full, …
